England U20s v Netherlands U20s at Telford
Thursday 31st August 7pm KO

England Men’s U20s return to action this month – hosting the Netherlands U20s in Telford.

The friendly at AFC Telford United’s New Bucks Head Stadium takes place on Thursday 31 August (7pm kick-off)

Fresh from his Euro success with the U19s, Keith Downing will lead much of the same group in their season opener before travelling to face Switzerland U20s in Winterthur on Monday 4 September (7pm kick-off UK time).


It will also be the U20s age group’s first fixture since the famous World Cup victory over Venezuela in South Korea in June.


A popular venue for development team fixtures, the Shropshire stadium hosted an U19 friendly against the same opponents last September.  

Everton midfielder Tom Davies gave England the lead shortly before half-time, only for Holland's Justin Hoogma to equalise six minutes from the end. The two nations staged a penalty shoot-out following the tie, with Aston Villa defender Easah Suliman eventually settling it after 17 kicks had been scored.


AFC Telford chairman Andy Pryce said: “It’s great that The Football Association have chosen the New Bucks Head as the venue for this U20s fixture.
“We will no doubt put on a great showcase event and look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship with those at The FA.”

Tickets will be available from the New Bucks Head reception between 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, by calling 01952 640064 or online at
